Team selectors are Derian and Sean. Line ups to follow.
At 4.18 pm, Derian messaged me on the Line ups group chat to say that Jacko had agreed to take over from Sean as team selector, attaching a screenshot of his exchange of messages with Jacko. I was unavailable at the time.
Derian than posted the suggested line ups on the main group chat at 4.31 pm. When I saw what had happened, I messaged the group chat as follows at 5.06 pm:
Since Jacko wasn't actually elected, I'll let everyone on his team comment before confirming the line ups.
Please comment here.
Derian posted the line ups again at 5.13 pm. There were no further comments. The line ups posted by Derian were as follows:
Reds 1. Derian 2. Wilson 3. Jessen 4. Daniel 5. Sean 6. Kelvin Ho 7. Chern Yang
Whites 8. Jacko 9. Jeff S 10. Keith 11. Gow 12. Delon 13. Ray Yap 14. Nic G
After the game, please post reports and comments on the game below.
Game started well for the Whites and they raced to a 6-0 lead courtesy of some nice touches from Delon, who was constantly a threat upfront. Ray provided most of the opportunities down the right and managed a couple of goals for all the hard work. Neil hit the goal of the game with a half volley from outside the box into the top corner with Derian rooted.
Reds then finally woke up their ideas and made a serious comeback to bring the game 6-5 at one point, with quick goals coming from Daniel, Wilson and Sean. Whites just could not deal with the long balls into the box.
However, White was not going to throw the game away. A well-weighted drive from Gow from his own half into the Reds' box, missed almost everyone and landed right in the bottom corner of the net. Delon might have the slightest of touch with his head for that goal.
Reds pushed on to level the score at 7-7 before Jacko, with the easiest of finishes, tapped the ball into an empty goal, thanks to an unselfish assist from Delon after hustling to steal the ball from Jessen. 8-7 to the Whites.
Last goal was called but it was too little, too late for the Reds.
